Fruit salad with ice cream is one of the dishes that is featured in the desserts section in the menu of many North Indian restaurants.

I make a simple fruit salad with some chopped nuts. I do not add any sugar syrup in this recipe. The fruits are already sweet, so there is absolutely no need of increasing the sugar content by adding sugar solution or honey or any sweetener.

I have used seasonal fruits like sapota (chikoo), mangoes, dragon fruit, strawberries and banana. You can add a mix of various fruits which you like, but you have to consider some points mentioned below.

Tips for making summer fruit salad with ice cream

  • Use seasonal fruits or fruits which are in season. Avoid sour tasting mangoes or strawberries. If using strawberries then make sure they are sweet.
  • Always use fresh, ripe and sweet tasting fruits only.
  • Fruits should ideally not be eaten after a meal. Its always better to have fruits at least half an hour or 1 hour before the meal or a couple of hours after meals.
  • Avoid mixing acidic, citrus fruits with sweet fruits.
  • Avoid using citrus fruits with milk based items like ice cream or custard.
  • Fruits are highly perishable and don’t have a long shelf life once chopped. So its always better to consume them fresh.

In this recipe, I have just made the salad and served with homemade Ice cream. You can even make custard or jelly and serve these with the fruit salad and ice cream. You can add any ice cream recipes of your choice like:

Serve as a summer dessert.
